Donaldson Walsh leveraging CTP experience to launch specialist practice

Adelaide full-service commercial law firm Donaldson Walsh Lawyers (DW) has now made its unique insight into the field of personal injury law available to plaintiffs.

Following seven years acting on behalf of the Motor Accident Commission which administers South Australia's Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance scheme, the firm has just launched a specialist new practice area called DW Personal Injury Lawyers.

According to the group's Special Counsel Joan Miller, their CTP experience has given them a knowledge of personal injury law that's second to none.

"We're all highly skilled senior practitioners," said Ms Miller. "We have strong, established relationships with all major insurers, and the kind of full-spectrum expertise that only comes from having seen things from both sides of the fence."

This was of particular benefit to clients dealing with traumatic situations in their lives, said DW Managing Partner John Walsh.

"When someone's seriously injured or killed as a result of another party's negligence or wrongful action, a successful claim can provide at least some compensation for loved ones," said Mr Walsh.

"But a poorly conducted case will only make things worse. It must be handled effectively and sensitively by an experienced team that intimately understands the system. DW Personal Injury Lawyers can now provide that team."

Comprehensive service, flexibly delivered

Ms Miller said DW Personal Injury Lawyers offered advice and representation for clients in all forms of personal injury claims, and endeavoured to be as accessible as possible.

"Our offices are centrally located near the Courts in the CBD, with wheelchair access," she said. "But we're also happy to make hospital visits and out-of-hours appointments when required.

"And the first 30 minutes of the initial consultation is always free of charge."
